Where do your ideas come from? (Quote of the Day)



I'm most likely to get ideas when I'm in the car and my husband is driving (and not talking). For whatever reason, sitting there watching the scenery whiz by produces the perfect conditions for my characters to come out of hiding. I'm not the kind of person who thinks, "This is what I'll write; this is what my characters will do," etc. Actually, I don't think in words at all. I see things in my mind and then I write them down. So I suppose any setting that is conducive to daydreaming and imagining is conducive to writing for me.

Where do you get your best ideas? Is it sitting at your computer or somewhere else?

Today's Prompt: Describe in detail your ideal writing conditions. Write this narratively, as though it's the setting in a story. What are the sights, sounds, smells that help you write? Artistically include them in this setting.

Happy Writing!
